"Beautiful nuances of light, adjoined with general gestural freedom and looseness - there is a quality of expressive line work with great colour usage". A judges comment on 'Enclosed within' which received a Highly Commended award for the Art Society of Tasmania's 137th Annual Exhibition
Working in a larger format on a wall allows use of my whole body to create gestural lines and marks. As usual I build up lots of layers of subtle lines and marks using a pre-determined limited palette. I work with a vague structure to get started. Oil sticks predominate, but crayons, oil pastels, oil paint with cold wax medium are also used.
I feel with this series I am finally able to paint completely intuitively. I love the process and the final work.
